Why did I read this?  Because I have read every book that Harlan Coben has ever written (as far as I know).  I would probably read his to do list.

Nap Dumas is a small town detective who is like a dog with a bone when it comes to an investigation.  His brother Leo and his girlfriend died there senior year when they were hit by a train, or so they said.  Also that night Nap’s girlfriend Maura disappeared and hasn’t been seen since.  After a policeman is murdered, the crime scene yields Maura’s fingerprint, which results in the unearthing of a conspiracy that has remained hidden since the death of Nap’s brother 15 years before.  Nap’s investigation comes at the price of his strongest relationships at work.  The villain is not who you think it is.
